Earlier this year (April) I put a question to the list, asking for help
with my research into the Albers family.
I would like to thank all the people that responded and in particular I
would like to thank Betty Krull, Fred Rump, Bernie Punte, Werner Honkomp and
Unfortunately, my work has prevented me until recently to follow up on all
the extra information that I have been given.
For a guy who is supposed to be retired, work seems to be taking up more
and more of my time.
Since my request to the list I have discovered that "my Albers" come from a
small town called Goldenstedt near Vechta.
The "Frederik Albers" that I was looking for first became "Johan Frederik"
and next "Johann Friederich".
I can now share the following information:
Johann Friederich Albers
Baptised 13.11.1816, Goldenstedt (Oldenburg)
Married 19.05.1848, Aarlanderveen (Holland)
Johann Friederich was a son of:
Johann Heinrich Albers (died before 19.05.1848), and
Helena Berens (was still alive in 1848 in Goldenstedt)
I am quite excited as next October I will be able to spend a few days in and
around Vechta. I hope to be able to spend at least one day in the Archive in
Vechta and Goldenstedt is also on my list.
During my travels I happened to come across the following web site:
http://www.alt-oldenburg.de concerning the city of Oldenburg. I am usually
the last person to find out about these things, but if you are like me and
have not seen this site before I would recommend a visit (I have spent hours
pouring over it).

I am looking for any information in relation to the family name
Oldenburg in general, and in relation to a Frederik Albers in particular.
The only thing that I know about Frederik Albers is that he was born
13.11.1816 in Oldenburg, and that he was Roman Catholic. In 1849, when his
first child was born in Aarlanderveen, he was already living in Holland,
his occupation was "kleermaker"!
If anybody can help with any information about this person, eg
sisters, parents, migration to Holland, etc. I would be very grateful.
Later this year I will have an opportunity to visit Oldenburg for
